  7. Olympian Rudy Winkler Visits...

Rudy Winkler, a U.S. Olympian and the American record holder in the Hammer Throw, visited Algonquin Middle School on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022.

Winkler, a 2013 graduate of APCSD, stopped by some of his old classrooms, visited with former teachers, and spoke with students. He was also interviewed by Mr. Anderson for an upcoming Warrior Way Assembly.

A big thank you goes out to Mr. Winkler for the visit, and for giving our students a real life example of where hard work and dedication can take them. We can’t wait to cheer him on in all of his upcoming competitions!
